St. Louis Surgical Error Attorneys Aid Injured Patients

Plaintiff litigation throughout Missouri and Illinois

Every surgery has risks and no patient is guaranteed an optimal outcome. However, when preventable mistakes cause injury, a patient deserves to be compensated. Given that surgical errors can lead to permanent disability or require additional corrective surgery, your compensation can be substantial. At the Law Office of John S. Wallach, P.C., we have assisted numerous clients with debilitating injuries caused by surgical errors, including:

  • Wrong side/site surgery
  • Wrong surgical procedure
  • Wrong patient surgery
  • Surgery unrelated to patient diagnosis
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Anesthesia-related error
  • Surgical instruments left in the body
  • Use of unsterile equipment
  • Improper incisions causing severe blood loss or brain, nerve and spinal cord injury
  • Post-surgical injuries

At the Law Office of John S. Wallach, P.C., we possess the investigative skills to uncover the cause of your surgical injury and determine if negligence contributed. When negligence is a factor, we can make a compelling case for medical malpractice to see that our clients are fully compensated. Among the most common operations where we’ve found a professional’s error caused injury to our St. Louis clients are gallbladder surgery and gastric bypass. If you have been harmed from either of these procedures, call the Law Office of John S. Wallach, P.C. at 1.877.241.1020 for a thorough and accurate assessment of your case for recovery. Our Missouri and Illinois clients pay no attorney fees until we win compensation for them through negotiated or mediated settlement, arbitration award, judgment or verdict in court.

St. Louis hospital negligence lawyers hold institutions accountable

Not all errors occur in the operating room. Often the gains anticipated by successful surgery are lost in the negligent mishandling of the post-surgical period. We have represented clients harmed by a variety of lapses after surgery, for which the hospital, rather than any individual may be liable, including:

  • Failure to adequately monitor patients after surgery
  • Failure to supervise inexperienced residents
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of post-surgical complications
  • Premature release of a patient post-surgery
  • Failure to properly respond to post-surgical bleeding
  • Post-surgical infection

Complications from post-surgical malpractice can be just as devastating to the patient as a negligent procedure, often requiring additional corrective surgery, extensive therapy and a much longer recovery. If your hospital failed in its duty to you as a patient, the Law Office of John S. Wallach, P.C. can make the case for its liability.
